“Cheltenham the home of festivals in the UK welcomes filmmakers to submit their films to the Cheltenham International Film Festival taking place between 25th May - 31st May, 2020.  All submissions must be made via:

The foundation of the Festival and the focus of the organisers is to give voice to emerging filmmakers.  In the event, filmmakers are invited to submit their films, feature and short, narrative and documentary, to the Festival.  Films selected for screening go into competition, judged by a jury of fellow filmmakers and film industry professionals, as well as representatives of other arts.
The Festival also welcomes and screens the films of celebrated directors, out of competition, to widen and deepen audience appreciation of the best of independent cinema past, present and looking ahead to the future.
